Monday is Earth Day, and retailers are celebrating with various freebies and deals. Here are some of the offers that caught our eye, with a few on offer this weekend and a few on Earth Day itself.
FreeStuffTimes points us to a few grocery stores that are giving out free reusable tote bags. On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the first 300 people to bring in plastic bags to their local Wegman's will get a free reusable bag. On Sunday, you can get a free reusable bag from Target starting at 10 a.m., and some lucky shoppers will find samples of "sustainable products" in their bags. And on Monday you can get a free Earth Day bag from H-E-B when you bring in five plastic bags from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. In all cases, the bags are only available while supplies last.
DealNews passes along word that Kiehl's will give you a complimentary tube of lip balm with the code EARTHDAY, but only if you spend $65 on your purchase. It's good through April 29.
Amazon is offering a bunch of deals in its Earth Day store. They include a few products aimed at reducing bottled-water waste, such as 15% off select Brita water pitchers and 20% off select Thermos brand travel mugs and bottles. There are also coupons for Seventh Generation brand products.
FreebieFindingMom notes that Pottery Barn Kids is giving away free packets of seeds for kids to plant at home. The giveaway is happening through Monday, or while supplies last at your local store.
